March 19-22, 2020
Once very popular on the FPC calendar more than a decade ago, the Spring Key West Poker Run attracted more than 40 powerboat teams and featured an agenda that was completely different to its sister event, the November Key West Poker Run. This March getaway will feature a smaller entry roster of under 50 boats, and a more laid-back agenda, that will include a true Boca Grande Beach rendezvous. Hotels include the landmark Hyatt Centric Resort and quaint B&B guest houses from the Keys Collection. This four day adventure will feature a Thursday departure from Miami and Sunday return.
